The Bilikiki is back from a unique and amazing 14 day trip. We had the pleasure to share these two weeks with a group from Got Muck! Thank you Kerri & Hergen for bringing on board such wonderful and funny people. We had sooooooo much fun!!!
The diving around the Floridas, the Russell and Marovo Lagoon has been incredible. The marine life… there are not enough words to describe it all!! We saw all sorts of sharks: white tips, black tips, grey reef, silky, leopard shark, silver tip and even hammerheads! We had mobulas, spotted eagle rays, barracudas, jacks, bumphead parrotfish, archer fish, ghost pipefish (ornate, halimeda, robust and thin robust). We had sea horses, pygmy sea horses (bargibanti & denise), cuttlefish, mimic octopus, Ambon scorpionfish, several different nudis, flatworms and on top of that we got to swim with pilot whales and dolphins!! It has been incredible!
During this trip there were also carving village visits, canoes full of veggies for markets and some traditional dancing, singing and panpipe music.
This groups has brought such great vibes! We even had two floating bar "parties" and we all learnt to play marbles with marvels (editors note: I do not know what this is either)! We would like to thank you all for these 14 amazing days! Time went by very fast, we hope we will see you again soon for more fun and amazing diving!
And of course, a BIG THANK YOU to our amazing crew for all the work they do everyday! You guys rock tons!
